Personal profile

Research interests

My main research focus lies on the links between physical complications and psychological distress in colorectal cancer survivors. Furthermore, I am very interested in biological explanatory mechanisms that could shed light on this link. Currently, I am investigating peripheral neuropathy and its sociodemographic, lifestyle, clinical and psychological correlates.




In May 2016, I defended my PhD thesis on biological and psychological stress and cellular aging at the VU Medical Center in Amsterdam, under supervision of Prof. dr. Brenda Penninx and Dr. Yuri Milaneschi.
